Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Sampler Block 8

Take a look at block 8 for Quiltmaker Magazines 100 Blocks Sampler...cute, right? I'm cruising along with these blocks. I'll take a progress picture of all the blocks I've got done so far soon.

Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Sampler Block 7

Hi!

I'm back with block 7 from the Quiltmaker Magazine 100 Blocks Sampler quilt. I love this block! I went for a walk recently and all I could think about were different layouts for this block...how would it look on point? With sashing? Should I make a table runner with it? Or, maybe a wall hanging?  Couldn't get it off my mind! :-)

Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Sampler Blocks 5 and 6

How are your 100 Blocks Sampler blocks coming along? I'm usually a big block kind of girl, but these 6" blocks are becoming addicting!

Here are my block 5 and block 6.

 

Block 5, Ladder Up, designed by Toby Lischko

I made two versions of block 6, Old Town Star, which was designed by Katie Blakesley. The first version was not doing it for me. When using small units to put the blocks together you can lose some contrast you would have when using larger units. The first picture below is my first block. Not enough contrast....  The second picture is the re-done version. Much better. :-)
